Heather Dixon is the author of the 2011 novel Entwined, a retelling of the classic Grimm fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Unlike the Grimm version's medieval setting, Heather's work takes place in the Victorian era. She started writing the book while taking dance and animation classes as a university student.
Also during her time at college, Dixon won the Highlights annual fiction contest with her short story Rotterdam Christmas, which was based on the experience of her great aunt, who lived in Holland during World War II. In 2010, she was a guest presenter at the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Conference.
Heather grew up in West Point, Utah with a large family of four brothers and six sisters. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation from Brigham Young University in 2007, and she works as a freelance storyboard artist as well as being a writer. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, and her dance of choice is the Viennese waltz.
